With over forty chapters, written by leading scholars, this comprehensive volume represents the best work in America, Europe and Asia. Geographical diversity of the authors is reflected in the different perspectives devoted to the subject, and all major disciplinary developments are covered.
There are also sections concerning the countries that have made the most significant contributions, the relationship between science and industry, the importance of instrumentation, and the cultural influence of scientific modes of thought. Students and professionals will come to appreciate how, and why, science has developed - as with any other human activity, it is subject to the dynamics of society and politics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The book's widespread uptake shows that it has already fulfilled its main purpose of 'accompanying' scholars and young entrants to the field in their formation and specialization. Thanks to the new paperback version, it will very likely continue to do so in the years to come' - Simon Turchetti, University of Manchester, BJHS
